I aggravated something in my foot a few weeks ago in an exercise class. I thought it was the Morton's neroma I have had in that foot, but when I finally went to the podiatrist last week he said no. He thinks it is a tendon, not the neuroma, and gave me a shot of cortisone and put me in a boot! I have to wear it for three weeks and see if it heals, otherwise I guess an MRI. My hips have been killing me - I told them I would need cortisone shots in my hips after three weeks in this thing!
 
The pain is right where the ball of the foot meets the arch and right in the middle. I just wonder if it has anything to do with the fibro. Has anyone had to wear a boot before? Any tips?
 
On a good note, I think the flare I have been in for over two months has finally let up (knock on wood!).
 
Hope everyone is doing well today!

I had pain there for months. I ended up putting arch supports in my shoes and it eventually stopped hurting. Good luck with the boot.

HI Upbeat, once in awhile I have to sleep in a soft boot for my plantar fasciitis. It keeps the sole of my foot straight and not bunched up like it wants to be. Mine began actually years ago when I started going to college and carrying a really heavy backpack of books without arch supports. But I hear that plantar fasciitis is also fibro-related. The plantar fascia are the tendons that run along the bottom of the foot (that's my very medical explanation!) and cause pain near my arch and also near the heel. You might want to ask your doc about it if your foot doesn't heal up after the boot. Good luck!

Thank you Littleneck, I will definitely ask him. It is weird I swear it is getting worse in the boot and before I went to the dr it had only gotten a little worse over the three weeks before. Oh well, it is probably me walking too much trying to finish shopping.
 
I also started Crestor about a month ago. I know it can cause muscle pain (like I would ever know if I had that side effect :-)) I wonder if it can cause tendon pain? Just thinking out loud.
 
Thanks again.

Hi Upbeat. Usually plantar fasciitis presents with heel pain like Littleneck mentioned. I have had it several times there but I have also had it right where you are talking about and it was a real problem for me. The podiatrist wanted me to wear a boot and I tried it for about one day but it caused so much pain in my low back and hip I said the heck with that and stopped. I happened to be it physical therapy at the time and the therapist massaged and stretched my foot which helped. For me it just took time to heal up. If the boot is still bothering you, you may want to call the dr and tell him you can't tolerate it. Maybe he will take a second look at your foot and prescribe PT. Active release therapy (www.activerelease.com) is also very helpful to plantar fasciitis but you may have to look around to find a provider because it is specialized therapy. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the pain goes away real soon. Lisa
If I can laugh at it, I can live with it.

Thank you Lisa, I hope it isn't plantar fasciitis. I have heard that is really hard to get rid of! Thanks for the link to active release it sounds helpful.
 
I will probably call my doctor tomorrow and see what he says.
